Irish Seed Savers Association

Irish Seed Savers Association

This is a working farm in East Clare, with a shop, seasonal cafeŽ and twenty acres of beautiful

woodlands, organic gardens and orchards that are open to the public.

 

The Irish Seed Savers Association is a non-profit charity, set up in 1991 to save Ireland’s

heritage and heirloom vegetable seeds, potatoes, grains and fruit trees from extinction.

The Association has over 800 varieties of organic, open pollinated heritage seeds in its purpose-built Seed

Bank. The extensive heritage gardens contain a native Irish apple tree collection together

with the country’s only self-rooting orchard. Each year, the Association shares its skills and knowledge with

thousands of children and adults through courses, camps and outreach programmes.

The Irish Seed Savers Association is one of very few organisations in Ireland engaged in this urgent work.

One of Ireland’s most famous sights, the Cliffs of Moher are entirely vertical and the cliff edge is abrupt. On a clear day the views are tremendous, with the Aran Islands etched on the waters of Galway Bay. From the cliff edge you can just hear the booming far below as the waves crash and gnaw at the soft shale and sandstone.

With a due-west exposure, sunset is the best time to visit.
